WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

My objectives were to get to know communications work in an NGO. I've chosen to make my impact and to do something meaningful. What I've learnt is much more than communications analysis or capturing stories, and making big from small, it is also a way of thinking, of living and of being! It wasn't only a work experience but a true human experience. I am so thankful for the people I met and I will always remember their dedication to learning, their smiles and their happiness.
